First, beware that if you are reserving the King room with queen folding bed, the folding bed is not a queen but a small full. When we checked in and unfolded the couch it was covered with dirty sheets, including some sort of rodent feces. We were moved to a different room when we called the front desk but I... More

I came to Cincinnati as part of a University group to see the history of Cincinnati as related to the Underground Railroad. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Riverfront and it proved to be strategically located across the river in Kentucky. A quick bus ride would take you to the city-center. The morning breakfast was dependable and the area quite... More

I stayed here for business and was very displeased. Check-in was slow, the bar was full with no bartender in sight, the room smelled strongly of smoke even after they sprayed and left the bottle of febreeze for me. The furnace went on and off all night. There was a half inch of dust around the baseboards and the pillows... More

Hotel isn't in the best neighborhood, but is as clean as can be expected for an older hotel. Very good service though... Very close to Northern KY Convention Center...approx. a mile away. Several fast food restaurants within walking distance.

When I got to my room, the floor appeared as though it hadn't been vacuumed in awhile. Tiny bathroom. No coffee maker in the room even though there was all the coffee selection and supplies. Parking lot light shining directly into the room all night long and only shears on the windows, no curtains to block the light with. Bar... More

This is a smaller Holiday Inn with updated rooms nice lobby area. They have a very nice small bar with an excellent bartender. All the drinks I saw being made were made from scratch, I did not see any pre-mixed stuff. The menu is limited but fine for someone looking for a late night or quick meal, It is close... More

I was just here for one night in September. My room was clean although bit on the smaller side. The bathroom was clean and the sheets felt fresh. Carpeting felt good to my bare feet. I have no complaint about housekeeping here. Staff proves to be professional and friendly. I enjoyed their free cookies. For the first time that vacation,... More

We stayed with some friends for the night to enjoy the Main Strasse area. Although my husband and I have not stayed in a Holiday Inn for several years, this location was recommended by our friends. The location was very convenient and the room was clean and fairly well equipped. There was a very strong smoke smell in our room... More
